Here is a patch that tries to implement this. Meta-commands should work from 7.4 to 8.4-devel releases. It was not hard to do, and I don't think it really is a burden to maintain.


One part left to fix is \du and \dg commands. I would be glad to continue to work on this but I would prefer to have comments before.
Good work! I submitted a similar patch also. For your patch I have one critique: the version sensitive code is scattered all through describe.c. Are there opportunities to apply some tests at a higher level (reducing the number of tests), or gather the tests into an easily maintainable chunk?

The cleaner it is, the more likely future patchers will continue to maintain compatibility.
